Whether you work in the construction industry or write from home, we are all likely to develop dry eyes at least once during our lives. Dry, irritated eyes are easily treated with eye drops, which take only a simple trip to the drugstore. However, if you do not have a preferred brand or understand what you need, the different types of eye drops on the shelves can be overwhelming. Before you head to the drugstore, understand these types and which may be right for you.


There are several types of eye drops, and it matters which type you choose. If you choose the wrong type, it may either not work at all or even make your symptoms worse. Different types of eyedrops treat different problems, such as allergies, dry eyes, and anti-redness. There are three primary types of eyedrops on the shelf: artificial tears, allergy drops, and anti-redness drops. Some achieve a combination of these purposes, but you can narrow it down to what you need once you understand these types.


Artificial tears are used for dry eyes and keep the surface of your eyes moist. They are meant to mimic real tears, but each brand has a mix of ingredients, such as lubricants, electrolytes, guar gum, and other preservatives. These preservatives are what you need to watch out for because they may worsen it. Allergy drops are used to relieve itchy, watery eyes from allergies. Lastly, anti-redness drops, also known as decongestant drops, should only be used for a short while to treat redness in your eyes. 


If you know anyone who wears contacts, speak to them about which eyedrops they use for their irritated, dry eyes. They may often use eyedrops and eye solutions and often consider which goes best with sensitive, irritated, dry, or red eyes. However, it is time to see your doctor when these dry, irritated eyes simply don’t go away. 


If you have treated your dry, irritated eyes with eye drops and don’t experience any relief, speak to your doctor. They may prescribe you a different type of eye drop or refer you to a dry eye clinic for treatment. There may be an underlying medical condition. Dry eye is not uncommon and can come alongside other conditions, such as aging, medications, allergies, and certain medical conditions. Your doctor will be able to treat you properly before the condition worsens.
